're going to leave a vast number of lots that are right now parking lots, car lots, or under lose used -- facilities and could be housing down the line. as i recall the housing was going to be about 6,000 plus units and now 6,000 plus 200 units. it's not addressing the needs of the mid-market workers and those people that want to live close to housing. the other thing i wanted to bring up which wasn't mentioned here is hotels. i know cory and jim worked long and hard on this and i know hotels is a peripheral component but it's a major employer in san francisco and there are programs at san francisco state and city college and right now the hotels are restricted to 75 rooms and 25 along folsom and frankly it's just not going to have many hotels built under those restrictions. in fact i would suggest probably none and i think the hotel rooms count need to go beyond townsend and clear need for it. there is not enough in the city and major employer and where you get jobs and no hotels along folsom and they have taken that out of the marketplace, so i think you've got to go upwardos b

the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a super bowl host or something like that, we're going to be able to give people a really rich amount of programs that they could access from here to santa clara to san jose. we can act regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce before this month is out, i

something or bring it to your attention, a lot of us here today work for the administration in this building which is actually is a pump station still in use that uses diesel pumps to pump the water from the ocean so it's not just a fire house, it's also us being exposed to diesel exhaust, and so with you mentioned this gal, rachel, is she the person who's not here today, or when you were talking about the air quality, having your air quality tested, and the odd thing is now a different agency runs and maintains these pumps that are right beneath us now so it gets kind of complicated, but i think i've been exposed, i worked at the airport for 11 years and then worked here, i have this exposure to diesel smell that you don't notice it here, i do notice it frequently, and so when you mention this gal rachel. >> so, just before this, we had a meeting because we're working on hopefully building a study to look at exposures among women in the fire course to understand what they're exposed to, this raises a really interesting kind of unique sub population within that, she is an environmental healt

- asking as many people as possible to give us feedback on what we should prioritize for the remaining slice of that pie. this slide shows a few different items, things that we have done. the main thing that we have that we think is pretty cool tool for people to use is an online - we call it the "san francisco budget tzar tool." you can be the budget tzar for a day. we go to a number of committees, street festivals, different events, to promote use of the tool and get people more information about the plan and gather feedback. we have a specific, citywide community advisory committee working with us throughout the process. and also we have done advertisements and other mechanisms. these are some of the backgrounds. the tool is - a little fuzzy on the powerpoint, www.sfbudgettzar.com. what you can do with the tool, gives you the 64 billion that we have, you can go through and select the different levels of maintenance, levels of program support, and also the different projects that you feel should be incorporated. we will give you feedback on where you are in using your budget
was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office building. to build an icon i can building that will house a lot of city departments. >> the san francisco public utilities commission has an important job. we provide clean, pristine public drinking water to 2.6 million people in the san francisco bay area from the hetch hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water sy
. that would be useful. thanks. >> commissioner antonini. >> thank you and talk about this 11th street corridor and i earlier stated my preference for what i believe is wmuo which is option 3b and one of the reasons it would also allow office and presumably allow retail in that area which contributes to day time uses that would help the vitality of the area because if you have a lot of entertainment uses typically clubs they don't come into play until late at night and allowing some office and retail and day time commercial things would keep the district moving throughout the day too. we had a discussion while we were having a break there on the gas lamp in san diego and -- i'm not trying to hint this is what we're looking to create here but they do have an area where a concentration of dining establishments and some clubs are easily walkable because you often have to be cabbing from one part of san francisco to another to go to different scplais and we have a lot of walkable areas and like san diego there are few walkable areas and why it's concentrated there. the other question i h
of the event arena and the orange for the mix use and retail development and in the dotted lines that is how views are gained along piers, along the san francisco waterfront, long views along the edge of the pier. but what we did in taking into account the full range of different opportunities we decided to actually move the arena around, tilt it around and reinforce the spectacular views and you will see in the site plan how the distribution of the different elements is. so this is the site plan for the development and i will present this in more detail in a minute, but the overall arrangement here you can see the venue located in the southeast corner of the pier maintaining public access along at ground level, and i'll show you that in a minute. can you seat very generous areas of plazas and tiers up to a height of 50 at the highest and 35 feet where you enter into the arena. you can see retail pavilions next to the embarcadero and then across on sea wall lot 330 you can see the proposed new development of two towers over the top of mix use development under a podium. now, this is a s
in is not going to stop them from complaining whether they are fully permitted or non conforming, conditional use, the neighbors have every right to complain if a venue is out of compliance. basically this has been written into law for a thousand years. the basic man's home is his castle now translates down to everyone is entitled to the peaceful and quiet use and enjoyment of their home. the western soma process as we described at our first informational hearing was a process of inclusion. the arts and the entertainment are represented on the task force. we had three town hall meetings. entertainment was on the agenda for each of the meetings. 200 or more residents and small business owners and entertainment people participated in each of those three town hall meetings. i can fully admit at the first town hall meeting tensions were throughout the room. there was a lot of tension, a lot of anxiety because neighbors were afraid of what was to come and the entertainment community was there arguing for more certainty. i can credit chris shaffer and the professional facilitators that she brou
. thanks for joining us. >> we've got a lot of news to cover in the next hour. hostess, okay, what's next for that baking giant, and was its demise brought on by changing eating habits or the market? >> we're also talking the weather. big travel day, people coming back from their thanksgiving festivities. we're also going to talk about the new democratic super majority. what exactly we can expect in the first few days of the legislative session, but first a second suspect is now in custody in a deadly crime spree. >> it happened saturday night. police used this sketch to track down the suspect. he's a 15-year-old and is now locked up in juvenile hall. this is surveillance video of carjackers outside the store, and police say he shot him to death when he tried to drive away. he was remembered yesterday during a memorial service in campbell. . >> he was a great kid, practical jokers. >>> two in a related story, the first public meeting in the search of a new police chief. the current chief plans to retire the end of january. while the search is already underway, officials want input about
. that is being rolled out at education, energy, treasury, u.s. aid, other agencies as well. these programs are celebrating the use of open data and hopefully will provide some additional support. i think there are even folks here who have been part of these events. we're excited for that continued support and hope you can all join this initiative in the neutral. -- future. >> so, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have
that was given to us is significantly incomplete. i'm not just commenting on the way it was listed in the public noticing but i would like to address that in order to fully understand it. stakeholder groups need to be contacted and talked to. the commission itself i think just needs for the clarity compare the writings of 2006, 2010 and 2012 and really evaluate whether addressing a administrative correction but i don't think it is. i received at a minimum up to 10 accordance on the matter. >> >> and by lawyers and all of the comment his the tone and message of consistency and i have to take quite seriously. it's not just about me being a commissioner and out smart everybody and the public needs to inform me about what the law says and what is going to happen under eir and ceqa law and i believe there are serious shortcuts being made here and addition to finding document full of vague language, innuendo, and conflikz of terms and terms are exchanged and don't mean anything. planning, planning commission, planning department. i'm not sure what it means and i could go on and on and refers to
and that informs these land use projects. now in addition to the networks are the list of projects themselves. we identified three phases. 12013 to 2017 and out to two 032 because there are different waves happening and different transportation improvements slaitded to come on line. it might be at the end of the assessment we might jump start a project because a major development is happening the year before so it's this kind of clarity understand whag is going on in the land use realm, the terminal and the projects and mission rock at one side and understand what all of these things or some of the muni routes coming fall into place. so just a sample of some of the outcomes of the workshop. we had six maps and summaries. these were they written on and saw gaps and things needed to happen. it's hard to read it but it's there and on the website and if you look on piers 30-32 you will see this but there is a list of comments so we know the transit and parking issues. that's helping us make sure as we work with engineers they're getting the input from the people that live and work about this are
possibilities there are for resources for that project, if any. so it is an item that needs to come before us. whether we can do something with it or not, i think we still need to have some transparency about that. >> yeah. i agree, commissioner, that i think it is a discussion we should have. i personally would like to get a tour of the facilities that are out there and any other commissioner that wants to familiarize himself with it. because it seems that we have a permanent place on this agenda that it's talked about. whether we like it or not. so maybe we can like it a little more. >> i actually don't know where they are. i would like to -- >> yeah, we -- >> okay. >> and in fact, we did -- when i first came on as commissioner we did do a tour of the facilities. it was laid out what was going to go where, what was going to be done, some resources. possible resources there were. then it just -- then it was just dropped. this was some time ago. i think it would be good to have other commissioners go on the tour and, you know, kind of get brought up to date on what's happened with that projec
in developing this. so, as far as creating access to the public, using the open data sets, and creating exposure to neighborhoods that you probably traditionally didn't even think were there, we realized there were 1200 different facilities all through the park -- all through the city as we were going out to explore. and upon our own discovery, and i being a local native, i didn't know about 800 of them. so, as we move forward into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> so, we're going to show another application from motion launch
for noticing that. in addition to noticing that the gfoa continues to provide us awards for excellence in reporting and transparency. this is our third year for winning that, on the heels of our outstanding achievement for our report that tells our ratepayers as well as other stakeholders what we're providing and what value we provide as well as our third year of our distinguishe distint award. if i can turn the mic over to -- for her independent assessment. >> tiffany ras mussen with pg&e and i have the pleasure of being here, i've been doing this off and on since the year 2000. working with the puc is a pleasure. todd and his team are fantastic to work with. as he said you have unqualified opinions or clean opinions on water, wastewater and hetch hetchy this year. we also are in the process of working on the cafr, the annual financial report for puc which pulls it together and working on the wholesale requirement audit which will be issued later this year. the team is well organized, and they take financial reporting very seriously. so again it is a very smooth process in working wit
to radiation based screening need to be, you know, used either in lieu of or in addition to and that's a very personal decision and a medical decision, but that added risk for those women who are already at higher risk from the very -- the detect is a really important issue, so does that answer your question? >> [inaudible]. >> awesome, okay, so schools, i've talked about some changes that can happen at schools but the reason we wanted to highlight this is because we can talk about federal laws, about state laws and it can feel daunting to think about getting involved in legislation at that level, although we try to make that easy for most to do by signing on to online actions and stuff, but for parents with kids, changing policies at schools can be an accessible thing, joining pta's or talking to the school board about having integrated pest management so kids aren't exposed to pesticides on playgrounds, that's been successful. there's a huge movement to get safer, healthier foods into schools and they just revised the school lunch guidelines, but also you could go organic, you could go loca
of controversy,hñ?ñ and debate botn the state level and on the city level about this. notably, when many of us/e7jkyéo board hearings about the budget and finance and;uñ?ñ?ñ said, los is serious, you need to put on the brakes and really make sure problems out there, and one of the things that waspoñ? highligd by treasure island residents an3 environmental organizers is that the water needs to be checked not just for microbe+=)qí&z4÷ñ?s probably who sf puc did but outrageously, the staff response at treasure islandyñ?ñ? is eithr that oh, we don't have to worry about radiation getting into the pipes because the pipes have pressure, and so nothing can commissioner moran's not here tell you that that's aÑeñ?ñ? lus assertion. water pressure goes away and materialsvxc of the pipes can leak in through cracks. so i was hoping that you folksçp could contact staff, and if they still have the water samples thatdmqmn they took to follow un thatñsñ?ñ?ñ accident, please hoo them,tvtl see if they can do a wider contaminants and radiation. there are going to be other to follow up and do a much
grow more quickly which many breast cancers are, so limiting use like in your car, get some stainless steel or aluminum water bottles, fill those with the water and you can leaf -- leave those in the car, you can have three or four so they're go and grab ready, plastics in the refrigerator, it's a personal decision, but sometimes i'll store stuff in plastic myself, but i kind of switched over to almost only glass just because it's easier to have one set of stuff ultimately. >> [inaudible]. >> obviously i'm not leaving it in there for months but i might leave a case in there, i might have that for a couple of weeks. >> studies they've done have usually been 72 to 108 hours, so relatively short-term, but also somewhat higher heat exposure than what we probably get most of the time in san francisco, so conditions are really variable and then it's usually controlled rather than kind of normal. yeah? >> so, in general where possible, staying away from plastic water bottles is not only making your life a little bit healthier, it's decreasing our dependence on plastic which is mor
of the things that has helped 30 years fly by is the range of issues that any of us get to deal with on a daily basis, or throughout our careers. so i think about the fact that when i first came in, it was the height of the movement to presoviet jews. one great highlight was being actively engaged in that movement to its successful conclusion. i might add when people thought there was no chance the soviet union would open its doors. and now it's a stunning celebration, really, of the fact that more than a million jews were freed from the soviet union, many who came to our community and today are actively involved including in our own organization. that was a highlight, including many important points, the shaw came to san francisco and spoke at a rally with thousands of people directly in front of the soviet consulate. i think about the work we did with the survivor community, holocaust survivors, who after the holocaust wanted to be sure that every effort would be expended to perpetuate the memory and lessons of the holocaust. i think about the establishment in san francisco of the holocaust c
's a mixed use residential use hotel and commercial uses is typically something that is contemplated for the sea wall lot north of base channel and with that we provided the back drop for the cac and the public. it designed the form process that the warrior's team has gone through and i would like to introduce justin mccann with the design team to walk you through the design of the project itself. thank you. >> good afternoon commissioners. my name is ms. mccann. i am with ae comas as diane mentioned and i will go over the design and the development proposed on piers 30-32 and sea lot 330. i will show you our initial concepts. there will be a lot more design to happen but i will walk you through our proposals for the development. ae com is a global engineering and architecture firm in san francisco and here for years and working in collaboration with others for this project. bill crocket is the head of the practice and leading the architectural effort for the project. some of you maybe wondering what the name snow hitter mean. it's the name of a mountain in norway and craig d
of the multi-dimensional man he was. i use that word because i wrote it yesterday afternoon want thinking of the mosaic of words, and the word cloud that abbey and will and you collaborated on to express the many dimensions of milton markses and you can look at those expressions of milton and likely add your own. like i said you will be from a number of folks giving their thoughts and tributes to milton today and please stay for the reception afterwards. sign the guest books which are now outside. some of you may have come in before they were placed and together we will create our word cloud and mosaic of milton. to begin it's my honor to introduce the mayor of san francisco, the honorable edwin lee. >> thank you peter. good afternoon everyone. welcome to city hall. it's my honor and pleasure to welcome all of you here on this reflection and celebration event, and just wanted to make sure you knew that when we were talking about this with abbey shortly after milton's passing away we thought it was a great opportunity for those that knew milton, knew his personality and engaged himsel
>> good morning, thanks nor i think us. i'm carolyn tyler. let's start with a look at the weather with meteorologist lisa argen. >> good morning, carolyn. most of the cameras are fogged in and that's because the visibility has been significantly reduced. a dense fog advisory for the valleys of the north bay. see visibility here less then a quarter of a mile in novato. take a look at oakland. eighth after mile. fog all the way down through san jose. three miles in mountain view. this will continue it move into our east bay. also our east bay valleys. definitely be careful out there. we are locking at these condition conditions to stay with us right through the 9:00 hour. numbers rank from the 30s up in napa to the 50s around oakland and san francisco. we will get into some low and mid-60s today. that's a cooler day, but we still have a dry few days before the wind and rain arrive. carolyn? >> thank you, lisa. all that fog out there may have played a role in a fiery fatal collision near the carkenas bridge. the crash shut down the westbound lanes in crockett just before 2:30 this mo
on elections, and after my dad ran you helped my brother run. the same people helping us, being part of the family, working together for the city. i remember some of the crazy things we did growing up in political life. going to i think it's call -- i don't know if it's called the muni lot or parking lot and where the buss are in the morning so we could put a handout on every seat and bus that was there. i remember standing out in front of markets and it was raining and horrible and saying "will you vote for my dad" and milton loved this. he loved this energy and out of most of us and showed in what he ended up doing. all three kids learned at an early age giving to other people was one of the main things we were put on this world to do. our mom and dad taught us that. milton was a true believer sometimes to his detriment and would take on any power he needed to be even if it meant being fired from the board and "you're not doing enough. you're not raising enough money". he would take on anyone anytime if it was the right thing to do. he felt so strongly things needed to
a little more but i also wanted to make it clear that they both have helped to bring to us this point where we have this compromise. so you have heard about a lot of the issues already mentioned today. and, basically, what this is about, is that we think, this is experimental type of housing which, is all fine and good but we should treat it as such as an experiment that we want to watch closely and not allow to just go unchecked without us first knowing about the potential impact and that is because browse we have all thought careful fully about what those impacts might be and we have come one a long array, including because these units are actually above market, now, we have heard all of the argument about why they are affordable and yes, cheaper impaired to larger studio apartments but by square footage, they are indeed higher rent and therefore, what would be the role in potentially escalating rents in the adjacent buildings and nabses that is one thing and the other thing that you have heard a lot about is the displacement of families because instead of building family housing, we are
parameter to it. the use of ground water. it is old standard. that was my only comment about what's going on at the zoo. to upgrade the zoo master plan, the water issue. thank you. >> richard rothman. >> commissioners and general manager, while we were successful in restoring our coit tower, we have another building, the mother's building at the zoo. i don't know if the commissioners are aware but the official title systematical the dalia memorial building. i think it is in honor of the former commissioner this building needs to be restored. i did research. there was an effort in '88 and '89 to restore the building. the art commission is responsible for the murals or art work in the building and reck and park owns the building, i guess it is managed by the zoo. this is another building that has multiple jurisdictions. i would hope that we could rehabilitate the building. the first two things that need to be done in my opinion while this building is a national landmark it is not a city landmark. i have talked to the landmark's board. they started a fire and would like to request the zoo co
can be intimidating, images a second language individuals not used to coming before the board can be intimidated. how do you plan to incorporate feedback into your decision process? >> if they are before the trying to present the case? is that a question? >> uh huh. >> first i have to finish is your primary language. i have been on the other side of it. sometimes people have a hard time to get the message across. as commissioners you have a good idea what they're trying to get accomplished. you can't evidently speak regarding the case but you can help them regarding procedure and somewhat hold her hand little bit and ease that burden so that it is fair for both parties. >> thank you. that's all the questions from the rules committee. i this time will open up this for public comment, you have two minutes, item number one. please sign up. >> sue hester. two minutes? >> yes. >> the city attorney did not find a lot of law because this would be a violation of the charter before the charter was changed. when the charter was change in the seventies it prohibited anyone who r
's important for us to make sure there is complete transparency, with respect to my relationship with the entity, they're all my brothers, we're all a family, but if there's any questions i'll be happy to answer those as well. >> president torres: so you're allowed to vote on this, is what you're saying. is there a motion? i think we're pretty well aware of the program. do we need comments? i don't think so. all right. have commissioner caen move and i'll second. >> commissioner moller caen: i will move the motion. >> president torres: those in favor say aye. >> ayes. >> president torres: item 12. is there public comment on the last item? i'm sorry. mr. decosta. we work so quickly for you. >> commissioners, what you have just done is you have maybe for the first time in the history of the san francisco public utilities commission, linked with the water system improvement project, done a holistic thing this training will have our disadvantaged youth, hopefully such type of trainingings can be included, be part -- be made a part of every project labor agreement. for the last two an
of the recommendations that came out of that report. >> thank you. thanks so much to the council for having us here and thank you to joanna fraguli for coordinating this. it is exciting work. it is wonderful to get into it and we see a lot of potential for making positive changes. i will pick up where josh left us, talk about the survey and the results, and go through the series of recommendations leading to one civic recommendation that is now in legislation. the top concerns found in the survey were widespread, sadly. there were all kinds of problems.. people talk about a lot of different things. top concerns included personal safety, on a lot of levels. visitors were getting into the building when they shouldn't be, having interpersonal problems with other tenants, all kinds of other safety harassment issues. these are not in order. bedbugs and other infestations including roaches, rats, mice, an ongoing problem. bedbugs are being dealt with separately; a problem for from being solved. a problem we hear from sro tenants all the time. noise is another problem. cleanliness. physical maintenanc
[cheers and applause] >> wow, is this amazing or what? two times in three years. we can get used to this. right, tito? yep. anyway the only thing i can say is thank you to these 25 guys right here. for years i took math and they told me that five time five is 25 but i think five times five is one because they showed they can play 25 as one individual and that's how they got it done. [cheers and applause] now, i'm going to talk to my family -- [speaking spanish] >> thank you. i just want to say i'm enjoying this ride. this morning and talked to sergio and got to -- i am not -- [inaudible] but i have my card so i know i'm not going to be stopped today so great pleasure to be on this side, all my teammates that make me so happy and so proud. and now the young kids are taken over and two is not enough. we are going for a three-pete.

will be looking in particular ideas about the potential maritime use of the east berth of piers 30-32, an important deep water berth. we are also coordinating with the fire department. we have department chief here representing the chief and we are excited about hearing the fire boat at this location, but it needs to serve the fire department's particular mission involving the fire boat, so there maybe refinements to the project around that, and we're also going to be looking at the historic preservation issues. reds java house is a contributing resource to the national district and how is that facility treated in the overall development? other issues that we will be addressing. we are contemplating mechanisms to repay the warriors that would include potential infrastructure financial proceeds so we want to make sure as we are issuing that debt to repay the initial private investments that there is appropriate level of security around that. we have used an appraisal process that jennifer will talk about and come up with the value of sea wall 330 and peas 30-32 and we will look
us having been in 2005. in terms of -- the best way i can respond to the preponderance or not of families living in downtown hi rises is probably one hawthorn which is a project that my company developed and has 165 residential units and it's anecdotal information and not just speak for example art stone and i have provided to my partners. we have approximately five families -- i think the definition of families parents with children living in the 165 unit high rise building. 10 units remain unsold but it can't skew the mix too much and the preponderance of the units are primary residents. they're not investor units. i don't know if i can shed anymore light on the question. >>i think you answered it and certainly sounds based on your experiences with hawthorn this is the best you feel that would work best for you and i am certainly supportive, and obviously these units are condo mapped so in the future they had to be sold they could be sold, and i really complement you also on the design -- redesign with an outstanding architectural firm and improvement on the ori
, and instead of just reporting the numbers tell us what we're going to do to increase those numbers? what is staff doing actively to make sure that those numbers are met during all periods in time? >> i think one of the first things in doing the report on a quarterly basis. one of the things we want to do is work with the project managers and make sure we're tracking on a payment by payment basis where they are within the meeting the lbe goals, so we can look at that and have conversations with the contractors as we go along, and keep pushing them. how are you going to meet this goal? how are you going to meet this goal? it looks like you're running around it. i think those contracts are less of an issue because you have already planned out the work for that contract, and it might be that the lbe is the person doing the dry wall and the participating so they're coming at the end of the contract. as you're putting up the steel and everything you see low lbe participation. you will see that at the end, so i think for those we can keep an eye on that and as long as they're meeting that
if you could thank president obama from all of us. yes. [applause] because i know today we're going to spend a lot of precious moments thanking leader pelosi and congress women fine 79 and boxer and. >> >> we're going to thank all of our community members and from china town and all of them have worked very hard. these are not easy projects. they're very complicated and people had to work at the highest levels to make sure that every aspect worked, and a person who has worked tirelessly for 20 years and we join in celebrating 25 years of being in our congress and sought at every stage to make sure these funds were projected, to make sure we're doing our part, that congress is doing their part, all of the federal agencies, the person that first called me to share the news we're out of the white house and into the congress and wait our magical 60 to 90 days and lees give a warm welcome leader nancy pelosi.

and the suggestion that we should use the lewd behavior laws and the indecent exposure laws is problematic and ineffectual. it's unclear that cock rings and other behaviors that we see would qualify as lewd. i think it's border line as best and it's a terrible position for police officers to enforce the following. is his penis slightly erect or not at all? i don't think any police officer is ever going to make that determination and i don't think we want them to. is that adornment lewd or not? did he shake his genitals to make it lewd or was it accidental? no police officer is going to make that determination. in addition if we start encouraging to treat border line lewd behavior as indecent exposure that is a automatic misdemeanor conviction if convicted and lifetime sex registry. i don't think we should do that. this legislation would not lead to sex offender registration and unlike the parks code it can be charged as an infraction indefinitely. now the police and the da will have an option to charge that. mr. chairman, as i stated at the beginning i gave this issue time to wor

. >>> early morning wake up call in a san francisco neighborhood. >> it is a foggy start for many of us. we have an advisory for some. i will have that, coming up. >>> this is ktvu, "mornings on 2". >> welcome to "mornings on 2", it is sunday, november 25th. i am mike mibach. >> i am claudine wong. a lot of fog. we will check in with the forecast. good morning, rosemary. >> along the peninsula and in  through the delta, can you see it here. it will be in through the morning hours. we do have the advisory for the north valley locations. visibility is down to quarter of a mile and that quarter mile visibility popping up in some areas. talking about oakland, crossing the bridges and give yourself extra time and plan for that. i will show you what to expect for the afternoon, coming up. >>> deadly holiday weekend, and this morning the fog could be slowing down the holiday weekend commute. this is the san mateo bridge. matt? >> reporter: yes, mike, fog is a major issue and especially if you are driving on bay area area. and on the -- bay area bridges and warning everyone about the fog. it is
the seat before us. i think it is hard to find someone for the cac. i am not ready to support to today. i would be open to support you on another seat in the cac for sure; it is important to have young folks who work at the center to participate; you would be able to be inactive, contributing member from the get-go. so, i know this is awkward. >> can i suggest that perhaps before we forward this with no recommendation, it's been close to a year that the seat has not been filled. in terms of the cac, and mr. cohen was not accurate about this. would appoint almost a year ago michael simmons, affordable housing developer who lives and works in the western addition. i think that, it would seem to me that given the time that has gone by, and given that the lgbt center does provide an awful lot of services to extremely low-income people through both the economic know the programs and elsewhere, i would suggest that at a minimum would put this forward with no recommendation and see what the full board thinkgs. >> supervisor kim: i am not ready to do that now. i am open for a moti
will have to go out and borrow in order to invest in our public infrastructure. the city uses its balance sheet and its ability to publicly finance infrastructure for things like roads and parks and a hospital and a new public safety building, and laqueena honda and mos conia expansion and the cruise ship terminal. we invest in our public infrastructure all the time and we do it on things that benefit the public broadly. when we have opportunities to allow a public -- to allow a private partner to take the risk of infrastructure improvements and then be repaid through the value that they create we protect our -- we protect our public finance tools for things that only government can fund, and we think that continuing a model that's really been perfected under redevelopment in which the value that is created is reinvested to pay back our private partners for the infrastructure that they pay for is a good model to try to emulate on a specific case by case basis, and it is one that has been used with success in some variety of way, in mission bay, on the shipyard, treasure island and we con
